Defensive Driver Training On the Track Day Course
UK ON THE TRACK DEFENSIVE DRIVER TRAINING
Keep Your Drivers Safe, Reduce Repair Costs and Stay Compliant With our UK Advanced Defensive Driver Training. The E-Driving online Defensive Driver Training Programme is a really good cost effective option to deliver training to a large number of drivers spread across the UK or other countries but for those who want to experience At The Wheel Defensive Driver Training for smaller groups in the UK this is just the training for you.
This Advanced Defensive Driver Training programme does not try to teach anyone to drive. This particular day course focuses on your company's driving challenges, whether this is Sales Personnel driving up and down the country or "Off Road" Driving techniques required in rough terrain. All the techniques reinforce the need to drive safely, changing the driver’s behaviour.
We know the cost savings you make from the training will more than cover the cost of the training.
This Advanced Driver Training to date has been held at Donington Race Track. It is tailor made to suit your company requirements. The training is usually delivered to groups of 12 or 24 drivers.
From the 30 year's experience of delivering training and coaching, it has been felt to provide an Advanced Defensive Driver Training day to maximise the time and learning experience of the Driver in not only the various driving techniques but also understanding the capabilities and limits of the car they are driving, the key elements to the training would be
- Skid Pan Training
- ERT and
- Advanced techniques
SKID PAN TRAINING
The skid car is a proven way for your drivers to practice their steering and control techniques as they learn understeer and oversteer at slower speeds, perfecting their use and understanding, before having to apply it to a “real life” situation.
Drivers also learn, in this part of the training, about threshold braking that the 60 mph to 0 mph time is just as important as the accelerating from 0 mph to 60 mph.
Drivers are instructed in 4x4 vehicles on how to use the technical ability of the vehicle to manoeuvre, to drive up-hill, down dale, across seemingly impossible side slopes, through woodland and mud on Donington Park’s purpose built Off Road course, all under the watchful eye of one of the experienced and personable instructors.
Should you wish there is the opportunity to hold a team building competition - Who will be the 4x4 driver of the day?
What is ERT Training? Drivers don’t often ask the question, “What’s the 60 mph to 0 mph on this car?” As this is probably not very exciting or thought necessary to know; that’s until you need it one day when you experience that ‘all of sudden moment!’ Stopping however, is only half of the problem, what if you need to evade something at the same time as hitting those brakes? This training provides the opportunity for your drivers to find out and then learn, all in perfect safety the driving techniques needed to do this.
A wide range of modern driving aids like ABS, TCS, EBD, etc. are also covered in this part of the days training.
This session covers both Vehicle Dynamics as well as Parking and Manoeuvring.
Vehicle Dynamics involves using a standard road vehicle while putting it to the vehicles limitations of the manufacturer’s standard safety & design limitations.
In a controlled environment your Drivers, with guidance from the suitably qualified Instructor will explore limitations of grip, tyres, braking and steering according to the weather and surface conditions on the day.
Most modern day cars have intricate electronic safety devices to aid the Driver but all these systems have a ‘breaking point’ when the law of physics simply take over, this exercise will demonstrate this to the drivers and enable them to appreciate the limits and consequently drive well within these limits in their daily driving style.
During the other part of this session Drivers also cover confined space manoeuvring and parking techniques. One of the main 5 types of collisions occurs whilst manoeuvring and reversing. This is a valuable part of the training, for as Drivers, we know we use this particular skill every day we drive.
Key Benefits of this Defensive Driver Training
- Drivers understand the limits of the car they drive on a daily basis.
- Drivers learn how to manage their cars in dangerous situations/conditions and to drive "defensively".
- Clients routinely see a 30% reduction in collisions coupled with a reduction in the severity of their collision, once they have received the training.
- By reducing the number of collisions you are lowering your liability exposure.
